BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards

BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards are a chance for you to recognise some of your own personal heroes in your everyday life and in the celebrity world.

We asked you to nominate someone out there, so amazing, that you think the world needs to hear about them. Your nomination could have been a sibling, carer, fundraiser or just a great mate. As long as they have done something truly out of the ordinary or selfless, are aged between 12 - 17 years and live in the UK they could be nominated.

All of the entries were reviewed by our team at Radio 1 and a shortlist has been created. The shortlist is then presented to a panel of celebs and experts who will decide on the winners.

We also asked you to vote for your favourite person or persons for Best British Single, Young Sporting Hero, Album, TV Show and Music Act from a shortlist created by our panel.

The winners will be announced and presented with their awards on Sunday 9th October at the Teen Awards. Nick Grimshaw and Mollie (The Saturdays) will be hosting the awards and your fave pop stars will be performing live!

If you can't be there in person, watch the performances and the award presentations live here on BBC Red Button.

Strictly Come Dancing

Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly are your hosts for a 2 night Strictly spectacular weekend. In Friday's live show Alex Jones, Anita Dobson, Audley Harrison, Dan Lobb, Lulu, Robbie Savage and Russell Grant will take to the floor with their professional partners to perform either a whimsical Waltz or a cheeky Cha Cha Cha. On Saturday night it's the turn of Chelsee Healey, Edwina Currie, Harry Judd, Holly Valance, Jason Donovan, Nancy Dell'Olio and Rory Bremner to perform live to the nation with their partners.

This week there are no phone votes and no-one will be leaving the competition, but our couples are under pressure to impress the judges who will still be scoring.

Brand new for 2011. Press the red button to hear exclusive commentary from ex Strictly Champion Karen Hardy and a very special celebrity. Commentating live in a fun and informative style they will give you the lowdown of what's good, what's bad and what's highly entertaining on the dancefloor. Plus they will have plenty of titbits of backstage gossip to share.
